TDD and Android

I really like TDD and I really love Android but in the past I had some trouble bringing both together.
While Android has nice support for running unit tests on device (or emulator) this isn't really an option for doing TDD since the turnaround times are quite too high. And it's also no fun for the CI server to bring up emulator instances on every build.

Now I stumbled upon Robolectric. I haven't had a chance to give it a try but if it's half as nice as it seems then it's really everything I ever dreamed of. (in terms of Android TDD developement ...)

I'm very curious and keen to give it a try.
